Advent Calendar Tea, Day 8
A relatively generic shou, I don’t know what year, or anything about it.
There was only right about 3.5g. I normally do my shou with right around 5g, so it was underleafed for my gaiwan. I don’t know if that’s why I felt this was weak, or if it really just didn’t have much flavor.
I only got a few infusions out of it. Then I gave up and tried for one long infusion. It didn’t improve.
I think it would be a good complete beginner shou. It’s not overly strong or too earthy, and it doesn’t have any off flavors. I’m still a beginner to pu’erh, but I think that I’ve advanced beyond this one.
